National has promised to crack down on sentencing criminal scum -

Labour's Kiri Allan, Justice minister, said it was easy for National to “throw banter around” but increasing incarceration was expensive – a 20% increase of the 8376-strong prison population, at $193,000 a head per annum, could cost the Government $300 million a year”.

You get what you focus on. One criticism I have with National is that their message is confused, and arguments often camouflaged in obfuscation.
